It used to be H.H Timberlakes, car sales, petrol station etc.

The corner where the door and two windows are was as open area diagonally. and that is where the Petrol Pumps stood. -- There is a picture in 'Stuff'

Wasn't Timberlake's on the other side of the road in what is now a carpet shop?

Timberlakes showroom used to be in what is now the carpet shop, does anyone remember the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow they had on display, as Freda says the other side of the road was the petrol station/garage.
